Whether in the clinic or hospital for a day or weeks, we provide teen comfort bags to pediatric cancer patients (ages 10-25). These may include fun distractions such as DVDs, books, video games or cozy socks. We also like to personalize them to each teen and work with the clinic’s Child Life Specialist to make sure the teen comfort bag is unique to each patient. Comfort bags are donated by Ronald McDonald House Charities of Albany. Special down pillows are provided through Luke’s Legacy—a program created within the foundation in memory of an amazing teen, Luke Romano.
To request a comfort bag for a pediatric blood cancer patient, contact the center's child life specialist at (518) 262-4679 .
